The New York Times' Public Editor, Arthur Brisbane, wants you to tell them whether they should disclose in stories when subjects are clearly lying about something.

Is that the prevailing view? And if so, how can The Times do this in a way that is objective and fair? Is it possible to be objective and fair when the reporter is choosing to correct one fact over another?
Dear New York Times. You may tell the truth about it when people lie. You may even be a "truth vigilante," as
you Brisbane rather strangely put it. You will be rewarded with subjects that hate you, and readers that love you. Pick a side!
